Holly Sunday! That's a lot. I'd love to own it, but it was cheaper the first time around.

Do you mean Panel?

I noticed a couple of inconsistencies in his description of the vehicle. Honest mistakes, I guess...

I'd like to call and ask how much it cost him to build...

I like the fact that he gives his mechanical background and then all the specs and forgets all about the man that realy built it.

I hate those jackasses.. As soon as I saw the "35 years of experience" I almost lost my breakfast.. Those damn guys screw up more than anyone else- glad to see that he retired!

Wow, it states that it only has 500 miles on the odometer.. Thats a bold sentence to be making about a vehicle so modified that has only proven it's self for 500 miles! He must be very confident in his work! Hell he sounds like a God, maybe he'll just miracle the vehicle to perfection!

On a different note- I know some guys that might want to buy that Panel...

A trip to Tokyo might be in its future... (not being shipped there, being driven!"

BUT it appears that this vehicle was a tad too modified for the guys that I thought might want to use it for this extreme display of technology, they want a docile and rather stock appearing vehicle... And the engine needs to be inside the vehicle for maintenance/ manipulation while cruising down the road.(mid engine VW Bus would work great!)

If things continue to go well you might be reading about it soon...

Thats all I can say.
